“Pune's 128 years old vegetable and fruit market!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Mahatma Phule Mandai (mandai means market in Marathi language) is situated in the old Shukrawar Peth area of Pune. This market is in the heart of the old Pune City. It is a colonial structure built by the British in 1886. It was earlier known as the Reay Market after the then Governor of Bombay, Lord Reay. It was later named as Mahatma Phule Mandai in honour of Pune's great social reformer Mahatma Jotiba Phule. The market building comprises of eight wings extending from the central structure having eight entry/exits. It was also used as the office of Pune Municipal Council till the mid 1960s with the General meetings conducted in the hall on the first floor.
Mahatma Phule Mandai, which houses hundreds of vegetable and fruit vendors, is the largest vegetable market in Pune. Its speciality is that all types of fresh quality vegetables and fruits are available here, round the year, at a very reasonable price. The market is very crowded on weekends, holidays and festivals. This beautiful 128 years old structure which has witnessed the history and progress of Pune, is a historical heritage landmark of the city today. The building is being renovated presently by the Pune Municipal Corporation.
